Kurumeng is a South African based company focused in the area of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Generation. Kurumeng offers fit for purpose and cost effective solutions aligned with global best practice.
Kurumeng provides technical support in the implementation of initiatives that promote energy savings, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute towards sustainable development. These initiatives include amongst others, installation of energy efficient equipment, building improvements, process improvements, and behavioural change.
Kurumeng has favourable costing approaches that allow businesses and homeowners to implement no-cost, low-cost, or high-cost interventions with short payback periods. This is further stimulated by available incentives such as Section 12L of the Income Tax Act which provides tax incentives for businesses that can show measurable energy savings.
In the global context, the rising of energy costs, the growing public concern about the environmental impact of inefficient energy use, and the planet’s diminishing fossil fuel energy resource reserves have not only increased the relevance of energy efficiency, but have also strengthened the business case for renewable energy. The latter is quick to implement and has short payback periods.
Kurumeng can assist clients to investigate, design, and implement cost effective solutions related to solar, wind, hydro, and biomass. Through the intervention of Kurumeng, clients can achieve net-zero-energy buildings which mean that the total amount of energy consumed in the building over a period of time will approximately equal the amount of renewable energy harvested on-site.
